Kylemore Abbey – Kylemore, Connermara, Ireland

Prior to Kylemore becoming an Abbey, it was built as a Castle and the first stone was laid in 1867. One hundred men were employed a day to construct the castle which took four years to complete with construction costs coming to a little over £29,000. (Source: Kylemore Abbey Tourism )
